Comedienne Candy Pangilinan admitted that she and her son Quentin still have so much to learn from each other. 

This, after Candy shared a conversation with her son — who has autism —  about school. 

In an Instagram video, Candy can be heard asking her son whether or not he wants to attend certain classes.

“Eh yung namimili na lang siya kung anong class ang gusto niya pasukan,” Candy began. 

Candy said she doesn’t insist on many matters with her son because they usually fight over it.

“Di ko siya pipilitin at mag aaway na naman kami,” she said. 

The actress-comedienne also shared what she does to prevent any argument from arising between them. 

Candy said she talks to Quentin or discusses what could be taken away instead. 

“Kakausapin ko na lang after in some other way. Or I take away some of the things that he likes for not doing things he needs,” she stated. 

But Candy noted that there are a number of things she considers before acting on anything such as finding out the reason he doesn’t want to go or if he understands the whole situation. 

“But before I do such, I have to find out why he doesn't want to go to class. Does he understand the meaning of summer? Meaning break from academic classes?” she said. 

Admitting it’s still a long way to go for both of them, she said: “We still have a lot to learn.”
